Doctors Frequently Make the Wrong Diagnosis

The best reason to know your body as well as you can and not to over-rely on your physician's diagnosis. Always know what the alternative treatment would be in Chinese or other non-Western medicine. Don't have a knee-jerk reaction to take whatever the doctor prescribes. Do your research. Remember, surgeons will run to cut you open. Always get a second and even third opinion. Use your own common sense about your body's reactions to drugs and its limits. Western medicine is far from infallible and is rife with mistakes, misdiagnoses, overprescription and drastic inefficiencies (to say nothing of the monstrous costs). Beware, educate yourself and always be skeptical of what you hear from doctors (most are great folks; many are dear friends), just as you should be skeptical of what you hear from a lawyer or financial adviser or any other professional with the arrogance of education/expertise and biases inherent to the profession and economic incentives.
